Watch Grass Giraffes Play “Backstories” on a Rooftop in NYC

Here’s undated but newly released footage (presumably shot in the warmer months of last year) of local favorites Grass Giraffes playing their song “Backstories” on a New York City rooftop. The video comes courtesy Jemma Borocz, whose “Roofies” series depicts bands performing on top of buildings. RIYL: music, rooftops, shirtless dudes.

Also: Remember the time the Beatles did that thing? That was cool.
